Getting Back into the Swing of Things!

It's already been a week into the second semester! I'm happy to be back into the swing of things. It was really nice to reunite with my roommates and all of my friends that live in my resident hall as well as finding some familiar faces in my classes.
After having a little trouble the first week with classes, I have finally gotten in all of the classes that I like and I think it's going to be a great semester. In a couple days, I have to start deciding who I want to room with next year or if I want to apply to become a Resident Assistant.
The weather is really cold and my friends and I have been cautious of slipping and falling on the way to the dining hall and classes.
Next week is the recruitment meeting for The Stylus so a couple friends and I will be attending and continue writing articles again. On top of that, I'm helping Amanda Seef, the Editor-in-Chief of The Stylus and the rest of the members of the Society of Professional Journalists plan a journalism conference scheduled to be held in March!
Now that I'm all stocked up on food, settled into my classes and work and eager to go to the gym daily (in the frigid weather) - I think I'm definitely ready for the second semester to be in full swing.

Second Semester

So it begins again! Second semester is officially here and I have currently survived 2 days worth of brand new classes. So far so good. Honestly I'm just really psyched to be back. You wouldn't think that 6 weeks worth of vacation was really long, but honestly, I never thought it would end! It's so nice to finally be back here. I'm excited to start classes again and very excited to see all of my friends. With all of my Brockport friends living all over the state I very much appreciated my unlimited texting. My classes this semester seem pretty cool so far. I have a couple Gen-Eds but the courses that are for my major seem really interesting. I'm really excited for Media Writing being that I'd love to do magazine journalism so hopefully, that class is somewhat helpful. One thing I'm really suprised about, the amount of work I have after only 2 days...
